In today’s episode of ‘same yet different’, Italian house Prada has launched their own take on the famous sneaker and it is known as the Downtown Leather Sneakers, a low-top sporty style crafted in leather. Available in vibrant colours like Cobalt Blue, Lacquer Red and Sun (yellow), they are all spot-on hues for the season.
The colourful leather panels give the white sneakers a refreshing look, and you will find the Prada logo placed all over the tongue, sides (as an enamel triangle), the back and even on the sole. The best part? The entire shoe is made out of leather (including the leather-covered insole), with a chunky 35 mm outsole that will keep you comfortable with every step.
Do note that some of the bigger sizes have already run out online, so you should visit the Prada boutiques in ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Paragon Shopping Centre to check them out before making a purchase. The unisex Downtown Leather Sneakers are priced at SGD1580 a pair, and perfect for those looking for new kicks in time for the Lunar New Year.
